This publication describes 25 different grasses and herbs occurring naturally in the middle and high Alpine zones suitable for restoration. Primarily for nature protection rather than merely for forage production, site-specific grasses and herbs have gained significance in recent years. Large building projects (such as ski lifts, ski runs, snow-making facilities, reservoir power stations, roads and tourist infrastructure) must provide rapid surface protection, restoration stability and protection of biomes. Prerequisites for the successful realization of such aims are the production and availability of seeds of suitable site-specific species. This book describes the possibility of lucrative, non-regulated seed production of selected species and is addressed to innovative farmers and seed producers.
